    Name & Age: Shelly, 28

    What kind of pagan are you?: The most generic kind. Eclectic wiccan solitary.

    Who are your deities (if any)?: Ever since my miscarriage, I am really leaning on the mother goddesses, like Brigid and Demeter.

    What pantheon do you use (if any)?: Generally Celtic and Greek, because they are the ones I know best. But I am also interested in Egyptian and Norse.

    How do you celebrate the sabbats/holidays?: I don't.

    Do you practice ritual on a regular basis? I haven't yet.

    Do you have a permanent altar? It's a work in progress.

    Are you "out of the broom closet"?: Only to DH, but he came out first.

    Tell me about your family: Married to Tim, 29-for almost six years. Lost our first baby this past May. Currently trying for a second.

    Anything else you want to share?: I'm so happy to be your new mod!

    This is me and DH last October at a friend's wedding.

    Name & Age: Misty, 30

    What kind of pagan are you?: Not really a true pagan - more of a believer of my own creed

    Who are your deities (if any)?: I think of God as less human and more as a web or energy, but I can totally see how that energy or web can be personified in pagan gods

    What pantheon do you use (if any)?:

    How do you celebrate the sabbats/holidays?: DH and I always talk about celebrating them and then we forget. I mean, we celebrate Christian holidays and we aren't Christian, so we might as well celebrate pagan holidays and give them equal airtime, right?

    Do you practice ritual on a regular basis? Nope

    Do you have a permanent altar? Nope - I'm not into the doo-dads and knick-knacks of religion.

    Are you "out of the broom closet"?:

    Tell me about your family: I have been married to Greg (part agnostic, part pagan, and part native american spiritualist) for 2.5 years. We have 1 son, Uther, 18 months. I also have a step-daughter, Leah, who is 6. We are TTC #2 (for me)/#3 (for him).

    Name & Age:
    Mandie 23

    What kind of pagan are you?:
    The weird kind. LOL. I call myself eclectic - I'm a bit of an agnostic, but I <3 the earth and learning about different pantheons/traditions, etc. I believe in the power of energy, be it positive or negative. So I identify with the pagan faith, too.

    Who are your deities (if any)?:
    Lilith. She's the only one I'm consistent about right now. I consider them to be more symbolic, though, and a focus point for my own personal goals, meditations, thoughts, energy, whatever.

    What pantheon do you use (if any)?:

    Anything and everything that strikes me - I am a fan of the greeks, though.

    How do you celebrate the sabbats/holidays?:
    Not well enough. I really want to start doing some things with Quinn this year. He's turning 2 and will maybe have a lot of fun! I'm still stuck on the 'traditional' celebrations - that's hard to get away from when it's what everyone does!

    Do you practice ritual on a regular basis?

    No. My spirituality is more in my mind. I'm focused on 'green' and 'natural' witchcraft - earth based stuff that isn't about ritual and ceremony so much but about being in tune with the earth and the Earth, nature and its cycles, etc.

    Do you have a permanent altar?

    Actually, yes! I don't use it much, but it's there to remind me. It's pretty simple. I used a long white decorative shelf from Target. I have my god & goddess candles, a bowl of saltwater, incense, and a cluster of candles I burn for people (instead of 'praying for' them). I need to de-clutter because a couple mundane things which do not belong there have found their way to that convenient flat space.

    Are you "out of the broom closet"?:

    More or less

    Tell me about your family:
    me, DH Luke and our almost-2-year-old Quinn. Luke's an agnostic bordering on atheist. We attended a UU church for awhile but Q had a hard time with the nursery and with sitting through service. We may try again after summer (they don't do services regularly during summer). I own "Circle Round" which is awesome for giving ideas of how to celebrate with kids (or even as an adult!). I need to implement!

    Anything else you want to share?:

    I'm so excited we have a fabulous new mod and I hope this board gets hopping. I really want to get back in tune with my spirituality. Things have been way off with me lately.

    Post a pic of yourself if you have one.

    I don't have anything recent.
